With all that said, I want to share some organizational tools that have totally helped me in the small areas of my life. For me, I could never find something that organized my office supplies. I tried bins, baskets, drawer organizers, you name it. Nothing seemed to stay organized for long. One thing that usually works for small pieces for me, are divided craft or tool bins.
I decided to try it out and for several weeks now, it has not become disorganized. At. All. Can you believe it? I hope I can find some more things like this to help me organize things and keep them that way!!!
These tool bins are from Home Depot. EXCELLENT QUALITY for SUPER CHEAP!! ($10 for TWO of them!!! HDX Brand-No one is paying me-just love them!) I love everything about these bins. I teach first grade in the mornings, and I took them into my classroom and they worked wonders on all the small pieces! I used them for my husbands nails, screws, etc. (probably what they are meant for ;-) ), and now my crafts and office supplies at home.
These tool boxes actually have clips on the side to keep them together (which makes them easy to store). They also can be kept apart if you only need one in a certain area :) Love that about them.
No matter how much you turn them upside down or shake them ( I tried them all :) ), everything stays in places. Love that too!
Clear tops so I can see everything before I even open it. :)
Movable dividers so I can fit big stuff and little stuff in it :)
Used my cheapo label maker to label. Not necessary, but for things that always go there, and for my husband's sake.
(only $17 at target, but wouldn't want another. Simple and makes me happy :) )
My craft bin has all of my go-to tools. I have my hot glue gun, pom-pom makers for my little hats, measuring tape, super glue, etc. I don't have labels here because I change things around and my husband doesn't really use these things :)
Each front side has my two sizes of glue for my glue guns-big and small. Fits perfectly.
And after maneuvering some dividers, I even fit my large glue gun, and crafter's tape inside. Excited about getting at least one area of my life organized!!
What are you doing to get your life in order a little more each day? Please share!! Love hearing from you!
